Cut me some slack…
The widespread concept that dressing up is uncomfortable couldn’t be further from the truth. However, it seems to have become the number one excuse for people to cruise around town in sweatpants and running shoes, especially during the weekend. Don’t get me wrong, but if most of us are “sartorially restrained” by a work imposed etiquette five days a week, one would expect that on the remaining two, people would want to look their best. Want sweatpants’ comfort? Stay in and enjoy your couch.
As I see it, looking good is essential to make you feel good and thus make the most of your free time! And that can be easily achieved with a V-neck sweater, crewneck tee, grey slacks and sneakers…What’s uncomfortable about that?

Although I have a thing against outlets, the truth remains that there are great deals to be had at a select few. This silk knit tie by Carolina Herrera was originally priced at 110€ and I got it for 10€: perfect feel, pattern and width.
